Advanced Biology Lab for 8th-12th

Welcome to the Advanced Biotechnology Lab!

Students will be immersed in advanced biotechnology lab skills, methods, and applications in this week-long class.

The class will include hands-on practice of micro pipetting skills, gel electrophoresis to solve a murder mystery (DNA forensics lab), and the bacterial transformation lab (students use the pGLO plasmid to transform bacteria to express green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the bioluminescent jellyfish).

The laboratory and critical thinking skills gained through this class will prepare students for high school biology and AP biology classes.
